Week 2

This week in Michael’s class we had a look at the different ways infographics can be presented to an audience. We looked at Static infographics (print + web), Standalone charts / charts as stories, Interactive charts, Interactive data visualisation, Scrolling stories (scrollitelling), Interactive tools and dashboards and animations.

We then looked at the ways in which textual information can be interpreted into visual data for example, the state of union speeches.

In the afternoon class with LJ, we then took a look at Lynda.com and set up our accounts ready for us to us whenever it may be necessary. We then took a look at the information is beautiful website and discussed how the different ways of presenting information may influence the way process the information.
